WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • 100% Napa Valley fruit, classic Rhone blend
  • Syrah 49%, Grenache 22% and Mourvèdre, 7% Counoise  
  • Aged 20 months in French oak

WINEMAKER: Timothy Milos (Banshee, Bounty Hunter)

WHAT WE TASTED: Aromas and flavors of ripe fruits such as red cherry, plum and blackberry blend perfectly with spice and a supple mouth feel. Slight gamey notes, nuances of smoked spice and the idea of wild flowers will keep you coming back sip after sip. Expect great acidity and a long finish from this sagacious wine.

AVA DESIGNATED: Napa Valley

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Pasta Puttanesca : black olives, anchovy, onion, tomato, parsley
  • Grilled Italian sausage, onions, and peppers with mascarpone polenta
  • Julia Childs’ Coq au vin

TECHNICAL:

  • High elevation near Lake Berryessa
  • Aged 20 months in French oak
  • Don't overthink it, just drink it
